Will Smith Dead?
Published by Courtney Russell / December 14,2015
News just in guys, Captain Steven Hiller the top shot US Airforce Pilot that was played by actor Will Smith in 1996's Independence Day is dead and won't be making it back for the sequel Independence Day : Resurgence.
Smith's character Hiller was a U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18 pilot and Captain of the Black Knights squadron. He was later promoted to Colonel and died test piloting the ESD's first alien hybrid fighter. This information was gathered from Warof1996.com - a website that is dedicated to the history of the alien invasion that happened 20 years ago (a.k.a. the year that Roland Emmerich's Independence Day was released). Going through the posted timeline after the events of the invasion, you can find a headline from a broadcast that reads, "Alien Tech Malfunction Kills Col. Hiller."
This apparently happened on April 27, 2007, and there is a corresponding blurb that explains what happened:
"While test piloting the ESD’s first alien hybrid fighter, an unknown malfunction causes the untimely death of Col. Hiller. Hiller’s valor in the War of ‘96 made him a beloved global icon whose selfless assault against the alien mothership lead directly to the enemy’s defeat. He is survived by his wife Jasmine and son Dylan."
Hiller is survived by his common law wife Jasmine Dubrow who was played by Vivica A. Fox and his son Dylan Hiller played by Jessie Usher. A large ensemble is set to return that also includes returning stars Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, and Brent Spiner in addition to newcomers Liam Hemsworth, Joey King, Maika Monroe, William Fichtner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Angelababy and Sela Ward. Based on a script by Carter Blanchard, the film will be arriving in theaters as part of next summer's massive lineup of blockbusters - and will be ready for your viewing pleasure on June 24, 2016.
